of the health care law tells cnn, "this is what was viewed as a relatively benign way to make sure the national rifle association didn't get involved with this." reid has been a top advocate of gun rights for years. in fact, just days after the health care law was signed, reid invited wayne la pierre, a top official at the nra, to the opening of this nevada weapons range. >> people who criticize this probably would criticize baseball. >> reporter: la pierre's visit was a big boost for reid, who was courting gun owners in his very pro-second amendment state of nevada, in a tough battle for re-election. >> i also want to thank you, senator, for your support every day at the federal level for the second amendment, and for the rights of american gun owners. >> reporter: both reid and the nra declined to talk to cnn on camera. but democratic sources on capitol hill say the nra was not the only threat to the president's health care bill. lawmakers were also worried about conspiracy theories circulating among gun enthusiasts that falsely accused the obama administration of plotting to use the health c
and unemployment and social security and state, my tax rate is 62% to 63%. roland martin is a cnn contributor and so is reihan salam. who also writes for "the national review." all right, i love this story, because this hits on so many things. reihan, let me start with you. a lot of americans are going to have a lot of trouble saying phil mickelson earning $45 million, i really, i do not feel sorry for you. but this isn't really just about the super-rich who are going to pay about two-thirds of their income in taxes, is it? >> yeah. it's also true when you look at california, they raised the rate on those top earners. they also raised the sales tax from about 7.25% to 7.5%. that doesn't sound like a huge increase but the thing is it's already the highest state sales tax in the country, and the reason they're raising taxes on top earners is the same as they're raising the sales tax. it's that california's government is really ridiculously inefficient. it's one of the worst state governments in the country. so if those tax dollars were buying a great efficient terrific public sector, that would
"the new york times." plus the newest member of our cnn family jake tapper, anchor and chief washington correspondent. welcome to you all. jake tapper, first of all, welcome to the cnn family. as i think wolf blitzer told you earlier, you just have to work hard, keep your nose clean and let wolf deal with the work. that's what i tend to do. a fascinating day in many ways in washington as they have been a lot recently. the president seemed to me to be a man who realizes he probably hasn't achieved enough to guarantee his legacy whatever he sees that to be. he looked pretty determined, pretty up for a fight and laid out a radical plan as many are seeing that has been much more liberal than in the past. as if to say, right, this is me and i'm going to go for it. what was your reading of it? >> i think we have a different tone from president obama than we have in the past. there's an evolution of what he said in the democratic convention where he talked about there are no blue states, no red states, just the united states. a more assertive, bolder, if you will, version of that, except he is
they have to change things up after cnn polling shows that more than half americans say that allowing the illegal immigrants to be american citizens should be be policy. all of this a day before president obama is set to lay out his plan on immigration proposal in nevada. here to talk about it is gloria borger, and cornell belcher, and margaret hoover. gloria, let me start with you, what is so different this time around for the republicans? simply the reality of november's election? >> yeah, they are worried about their own survival as a political party. one way to survive as a party is to broaden your base and not remain hostage to a single part of it. i think that has been the problem for the republican party when you talk about john mccain. when john mccain was challenged from the right in 2010, when he was running for re-election to the senate, he became much more conservative on immigration policy, and now he is sort of unshackled and back to the position that he was in, in 2005 and 2007. i mean, you know, i spent a lot of time with him on that straight talk express when he was r
